    The official White House Christmas Tree - an 18.5-foot Fraser fir - was presented to First Lady Michelle Obama on Friday. 

    The Marine Band played as the horse-drawn wagon carrying the tree pulled up to the North Portico. Glenn and Jay Bustard of Bustard's Christmas Trees of Pennsylvania, the growers of this year's tree, presented the tree to the first lady. 

    "It's beautiful. It's going to work," said Obama, who was holding the first family's dogs, Bo and Sunny, on a leash. 

    She wished everyone happy holidays, saying she hopes there will be snow. The tree will be on display in the Blue Room.
